This past week, our friend Kelli was working in El Paso. She suggested that we just all join her for the weekend and we would drive to Las Cruces, NM to celebrate the husbands birthdays. It was a great idea! We flew out on Thursday and rented a house with a beautiful view of the Organ Mountains. The rest of the weekend included a 4 1/2 mile hike in the snow up the Organ mountains, acting like little kids sliding down the sand dunes at White Sands National Monument, some great dinners and lots of time chil-laxing on the sofa watching movies. Trust me this is not something I can do at home. There is always something or someone calling my name. It was a great time with great friends and we can't wait to do it again and maybe with the kids next time!
There is just something strange about seeing cactus in the snow.
While we were gone we left the kids in wonderful hands--Aunt Amber and Uncle Jonny to the rescue! They got to go to the Wiggles Play Room, a puppet show of Peter and the Wolf, Chick-Fil-A, Going Bonkers and finished the weekend with the boys taking them to the church we have been frequenting. I think all survived quite well and had a perfect time together.
